Gillian McAllister’s new crime novel Wrong Place, Wrong Time has been selected as Reese Witherspoon’s latest book club pick.

In Reese’s own words: “This book is SO good. It is such a thrilling read, I could not stop turning the pages and I couldn’t believe the final twist!”

The book is a psychological, time travelling thriller where a mother witnesses her son committing a murder. She wakes up the next day after a night at the police station battling with the question of how she had raised her son to become a killer and then the extraordinary happens, she realises it is the day before. From then on, each day she wakes up is a day earlier than before. As she moves back slowly, and then faster, through time, she begins to investigate what might have led her son to commit murder, and how she can prevent it from happening.

Gillian McAllister attributes becoming a writer to the years in which she was bedbound with a serious case of glandular fever in her early twenties that led to her contracting chronic fatigue syndrome. She recovered extremely slowly, being able to walk five minutes one year and 15 minutes the next. At the time she was training to become a lawyer and had to put it on hold. During this time, she started writing and has now written seven books.
